Holiday Festivities Right Around the Corner

Holiday Readings - The Tradition Continues

From Dec. 2 through Dec. 5 join Kathryn Atwood as she reads a Christmas novel in a dramatic, noisy, and hilarious tone from 12 p.m. - 1 p.m. in Nichols 242.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson portrays:

The Herdmans who are the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie, steal, smoke cigars, swear, and hit little kids. So no one is prepared when this outlaw family invades church one Sunday and decides to take over the annual Christmas pageant. Their interpretation of the tale -- the Wise Men are a bunch of dirty spies and Herod needs a good beating -- has a lot of people up in arms. But it will make this year's pageant the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever.

Come by for popcorn and hot cocoa as Hutchins Administrative Specialist (and probably distant Herdman relative) Kathryn reads aloud from this unconventional holiday favorite.
